A media English text for first-time readers of English newspapers or those who have problems with longer passages

This text is a collection of 20 articles from one of Japan’s leading English language newspapers, The Japan News. The articles have been chosen with word count and level of difficulty in mind, which makes them ideal for students who are approaching English newspapers for the first time or those who have trouble dealing with longer passages. They thus serve particularly well as an introduction to English newspapers, extending the four skills and boosting the ability to think critically and take notes. The teacher’s material contains rough translations of answers, four sets of test questions, and supplementary tasks.
